Choosing the right casket is a matter of personal taste and appropriateness for the person being honored. Larkin gives you the choice between bronze, steel, copper, wooden and enhanced width caskets.
Bronze, a semi-precious material and an alloy of copper and either zinc or tin, is the strongest and longest lasting of any casket construction material. Bronze is resistant to corrosive elements, an important consideration in selecting a casket.
Copper is considered a precious metal, and evidence of its longevity rests in the original copper roofs and pipes which survive in the world’s greatest architectural gems. Copper also resists corrosion. It is one-third stronger than stainless steel and available in 32-ounce weight.
Aurora pioneered the use of stainless steel in casket manufacturing more than 35 years ago. Today, stainless steel continues to provide the greatest value to families and funeral homes. Not only does it offer the quality and durability of copper and bronze for the price of standard steel, but it’s a product that families understand and value in their everyday life.
The long-lasting nature of metal combined with its affordability and performance make steel caskets one of the most popular selections. The range of colors—from respectful blues, browns, blacks, and grays to peaceful pastels in purples, pinks, and blues—makes each selection unique. Two major classifications of Aurora’s steel casket product line are 18-gauge steel and 20-gauge steel.
A natural, environmentally sound choice for caskets, hardwood is strong, beautiful, and shock-resistant. When families choose a hardwood casket, they are leaving a legacy for the next generation because wood is a renewable resource.
